This Sixth Day of Creation window was commissioned in 1913 from the Franz Mayer’schen Hofkunstanstalt in Munich (Germany’s leading glass mosaic and stained glass window manufacturers) and painted by Adolf von der Heydt. It is unique in the fact that the image was taken directly from Burne-Jones’s finished goache, whereas the windows in English churches were taken from the earlier designs Burne-Jones made for Morris & Co..

The Fifth and Sixth Days of Creation.

The Seventh Day – the Sabbath.
